December, Already?! Bad Boy George & Terra do Bravo!

Okay, I think I'm officially OLD. Like my father used to say, when you get older, the years just fly by, and he was right. I cannot believe it's already December. Thanksgiving caught be off guard, and in about 3 weeks it will be Christmas. Wheeww...

Have you put up your Christmas tree yet?

I haven't. I'm hoping to do it on the weekend.

Have you sent out your Christmas cards yet?

I haven't. I still have to take that photo that the kids just "LOVE" to participate in. You know the photo where I ask all the children of the house to dress decently and pose? When I say "ask" it usually involves begging. I have to beg for the kids to stop for 10 minutes from their "busy" schedules so I can take a picture of them before Father Time comes around and they leave the nest. Perhaps this year I and Rich will be in the picture..we shall see.

Are you done with your Christmas shopping?

I haven't, but I put in a big dent into it---it will happen--hopefully soon.

Santa has already granted my Christmas wish: New reclining couch and loveseat! Yay!! I love Santa! Now Rich won't have to use my son's old rocking horse as a foot stool, and I can fill the other half of my front room. I'm happy---hopefully it will get here soon so I can figure out where we are going to put the tree...

I haven't written in here for what it seems ages. My Avon selling this month has been pretty busy, and I've recruited two people to sell. It's a lot of work. They are both smart ladies and I'm sure they will get the hang of it, but it takes a lot of my time. This is the best time to start selling with the Christmas season. I wish I had made more SSS gift bags-but I don't think I have the time to make anymore---I'm just too busy!! Oh, here is where I insert my shameless plug:

Well, according to the news I heard in the radio, I won't be seeing Boy George in concert anytime soon, or probably in my lifetime. To make it short, he actually confessed to kidnapping, and chained a guy to his wall because he thought the guy "hacked" his computer. Gee...that's a GREAT reason to kidnap. Sooo disappointing!!! He may go to prison for this. Boy George is a VERY BAD BOY. Sigh.... The picture above comes from a more gentle and simplier time. I am dressed as Boy and my friends are dressed in disguise. I will just have to remember those innocent years when I used to write my fan mail inviting him over for tea. Sigh..

Well, like usual, my plate is full for the day. I got to go and do stuff----

I got some exciting news yesterday--my cousin who lives in Lisbon was offered a movie deal. He wrote a novel a while back about his childhood in the Azores, and he was approached my a director who wants to make it into a movie. Very exciting... They want to film it onsite on the island!! So surreal, but yet so great!

Yep, that's written by my cousin, Carlos Enes.... (Yep, I'm feeling pretty proud.)

I know your very disappointed in Boy George, shame on him. I have half my tree put up. We had to go get more lights. Cards, half written, shopping, 1/4th done. Sigh. Shopping used to be easier and cheaper. Exciting about your cousin.

CONGRATS TO YOUR COUSIN - how exciting is that!!!
Boy George will not like prison - that is so sad!
We put up a 4 foot tree this year - I like it - but not much else in decorating!!
Just not in the mood really - no gifts this year - no money!
hope your week is wonderful

não sabia que havia um director interessado em fazer um filme sobre o livro do Carlos. Espero que dê certo! A Vilanova ainda vai entrar no mapa do cinema :)

ps: acho que a tua tia Aidinha ia ficar muito nervosa se fosse a estrela.
